Continuation of 2018 TV anime based on manga by Rensuke Oshikiri heads to Netflix in Japan on March 20, 2019
Video games are serious (and romantic) business in a new trailer for Hi Score Girl EXTRA STAGE, a three-part original animation video series that continues the story of the arcade-obsessed Nineties kids of Hi Score Girl.
Based on the manga by Rensuke Oshikiri, the Hi Score Girl anime is directed by Yoshinobu Yamakawa and features animation production by J.C. Staff. Hi Score Girl is digitally distributed by Netflix, who describe the story as follows:
A chronic gamer abysmally inept in academics and sports finally meets his match at his usual shady arcade -- and it's his rich classmate, Akira.
Hi Score Girl EXTRA STAGE will be published in Japan on March 20, 2019. The OAVs will stream on Netflix, and they will also be released on Bluray and DVD.
